I began Meg Travels in August and this month is my fourth anniversary! It has been so much fun sharing travel adventures from near and far. When I look for themes over the years I can see that flowers and gardens are some of my favorites, along with doors, sunsets and signs. I tend to travel in the spring and that is an ideal time to see fresh and colorful flowers. Autumn is another beautiful season for watching the leaves change color, and it is still warm and sunny.
I will continue to travel so there will be plenty more adventures (with pictures) to share over the next year. Here are some of the flowers, doorways and other souvenir pictures that I’ve taken over the past four years.

St. Petersburg, Florida

Prince Edward Island
When I was in Avignon, France, I saw this sign and decided that I should try to see as many of these places as possible.
The first place I went was to the Palais des Papes that was full of interesting rooms, nooks, and details on display. Here is some of what I saw.
Later I decided to visit some of the shops in the same area. I liked the brightly colored fabrics and all the lavender items for sale. I purchased quite a few of the soaps and sachets to take home as souvenirs. These pictures include important shopping details!
You can find more details here.
When I was in Provence last May it was sunny and bright. In addition to the sun there were many examples of the color yellow that I noticed. Here are some of my souvenir pictures from Provence.

A yellow building
This is where I stayed when I was in Provence. One of the first things I saw was the bridge, and immediately I started humming “Sur le Pont d’Avignon…” which I learned many years ago during French class in elementary school. I wondered if there were other people nearby who knew the song so we could sing it in a round.
I also visited the Palais des Papes and learned about that aspect of the city’s history. It was interesting to see all the different room displays and admire the impressive building.
